“[A] catchy premise with surprising wisdom and specificity.”–New York Times Book Review on The Bromance Book Club
What genres do you write?
I write romantic comedy and contemporary romance.
Coffee or tea lover?
Definitely coffee. But only if it is appropriately doctored up with a lot of cream and sugar.
Name one thing on your bucket list.
I want to take a winter wolf watching trip to Yellowstone. You can see the wolves so much better in the snow. I’ve been to Yellowstone three times but never in winter.
Do you have pets?
Yes! I have a very spoiled Maltese named Domino who runs our house.
When I wake up every morning I…
Stand at the door and beg Domino to come back inside because he takes so long to pee.
Weirdest or unique thing you own.
I have my grandfather’s wings and his pilot’s cap from when he was a B-24 pilot in WWII. Last summer, my cousin and I actually rode in one of the only working B-24s left in the world in his honor.
Do you have any hobbies or particular skills?
I’m a darn good cook, and to relax, I color.
What do you hope readers will experience or gain when reading your stories?
I hope they experience a rollercoaster of emotion! I try to fill my books with everything—laughter, tears, sadness, hope, and sexiness!
What inspired you to write Crazy Stupid Bromance?
As soon as I created the character of Noah in Undercover Bromance, I knew he was the perfect love interest for Alexis. And I also knew Alexis was the perfect character for a plot I’ve always wanted to explore—kidney donation in a family. It’s something my family has personal experience with because my husband donated a kidney to his sister shortly after we got married.
Three words that best describes your writing style.
Funny, steamy, heartwarming
A hacktivist and a cat café owner decode the friend zone in this romantic comedy from the author of Undercover Bromance. Alexis Carlisle and her cat café, ToeBeans, have shot to fame after she came forward as a victim of a celebrity chef’s sexual harassment. When a new customer approaches to confide in her, the last thing Alexis expects is for the woman to claim they’re sisters. Unsure what to do, Alexis turns to the only man she trusts—her best friend, Noah Logan. Computer genius Noah left his rebellious teenage hacker past behind to become a computer security expert. Now he only uses his old skills for the right cause. But Noah’s got a secret: He’s madly in love with Alexis. When she asks for his help, he wonders if the timing will ever be right to confess his crush. Noah’s pals in The Bromance Book Club are more than willing to share their beloved “manuals” to help him go from bud to boyfriend. But he must decide if telling the truth is worth risking the best friendship he’s ever had.

Excerpt of Crazy Stupid Bromance
“What?” Noah looked up from the disaster that was Colton’s laptop. He’d been working for two hours in Colt’s palatial estate and had become grumpy. Not only from Colton’s complete inability to stop destroying his own security but from the nagging sense that Noah had officially become a fraud.
Here he sat in a house that probably cost more than most Americans made in a decade, a house large enough for twenty people to live like kings. And while the old Noah would have been raging against an economic system that allowed that kind of wealth to accumulate at the very top, he was, instead, making his own money off it.
So, yeah, he was grumpy.
“The Russian’s wife,” Colton repeated. “Have you ever met her?”
Noah side-eyed him. “No. Why?”
“I don’t think she exists.”
Noah snorted and lifted his beer to his lips. “That’s ridiculous. Of course, she exists.”
“No one has ever seen her. I think she’s a figment of his imagination.”
Noah rolled his eyes. “He’s a professional athlete. He couldn’t have a fake wife. Just Google her.”
“I did. There are zero pictures of her. I mean, zip. Don’t you think that’s weird?”
Noah grumbled again. “Don’t you have any friends? I’m working here.”
“That hurts, man. I thought we were friends.”
Guilt forced an apology from his lips. “Fine. But don’t you have somewhere to be? I thought famous people had to go be famous and shit.”
“Nope.” Colt slung a six string onto his lap and whipped out a quick set of chords.
Noah glanced up. “That new?”
Colt shrugged. “Something I’m working on for the next album.”
His voice had taken on an almost imperceptible tightness. His friend—and they were friends, which was so fucking weird—had a lot riding on his next album. His first two went platinum, but his last release didn’t have a single top-ten hit.
“You could investigate it, you know.”
Noah peered over his glasses. “Investigate what?”
“The Russian’s wife.”
“Because you work for the CIA, right?”
“Yes,” Noah deadpanned. The guys were convinced his company was just a cover for something much more exciting.
Colton paused in his playing. “Shit. Seriously?”
Noah hit a few more keys. “No.”
“But you’ve got a surveillance van, man.”
“All computer security companies do.”
Noah sighed and leaned back in the chair at the dining table where he sat. “Clients hire me to test the security of their systems. Sometimes that includes communications and surveillance.”
“I think you’re lying. I think you work for the FBI or something.”
Well, that part was almost true. Or it had been at one time. Consulting with the FBI had been the only thing that kept him out of a minimum-security prison.
But those days were over. Now he got paid millions of dollars to help dipshits like Colton Wheeler protect themselves when they clicked on porn links.
His cell phone buzzed in his pocket. Noah pulled it out and saw Alexis’s face on the screen. His mood instantly lightened. He put the phone to his ear. “Hey.”
She barely made a sound. “Noah . . .”
His whole body went rigid. “What’s wrong?”
“Can you—” She made that same choking sound.
He stood and nearly knocked over the chair. “Can I what? What is going on?”
“Something happened. Can you come over?”
“I’m on my way.” He hung up and shoved his phone in his pocket as he dug his keys from the other one.
Colton watched him, concern lacing his voice and his eyes. “Everything all right?”
“I gotta go.”
Noah drove across town like he was trying out for Mario Kart. He whipped into her driveway, killed the engine, and threw open his car door. Her front door was unlocked, so he walked in and yelled her name.
She answered from upstairs. “Up here.” Her voice sounded thick.
Noah took the stairs two at a time and then walked down the short hallway to her bedroom. She sat in the window seat overlooking the backyard. At the sound of his footsteps, she turned and looked at him. Her eyes were red and puffy. Her hair was piled on top of her head in a crazy, messy knot, and she wore his sloppy sweatshirt over baggy sweatpants. She looked, in a word, horrible. He would’ve laughed if his heart hadn’t suddenly shattered.
His eyes took in the rest of the scene. A box of papers and photos lay overturned on the floor, and other items were strewn across the bed. He crossed the room in long strides and dropped to his knees beside the window seat. “What’s going on? What happened?”
She handed him a crumpled, yellowed card, like the kind that came with flowers.
A name was scribbled in hurried scrawl.
Confusion pulled his eyebrows together. Noah looked up. “What is this? Who is Elliott V.?”
“That,” Alexis said, “is apparently my father.”
